: because it's not about him. during the election, he was a lion. man, he tore mitt romney's face off, but when it's issues that aren't, you know, not necessarily related to his own personal career, not as much. >> cenk, that is exactly the thing that i find the most confusing about obama. here's a guy who during the election, he can run the new kind of campaign, exist in the new politics, he can get the dirty story told and also be the orator and be clean clean as a whistle up top. so he can do it all during the campaign, and then he wins the presidency. then to get it done, to push through legislation that has this kind of overwhelming popular support, he can't get it done. it's crazy to me. cenk: it's a matter of priorities mark, i'm telling you. it's the top priority for him to win, for himself personally, right? but the background check i think is a bit of an exception. i think he really did want that for his so-called legacy, as weak as i thought it was. everything else, you want me to water it down, keep 94 of the bush tax cuts and make them permanent? as long as i can take dow
inconclusive elections, italy remains without a government. hopes that the main parties would form a grand coalition have been dashed by political squabbling. they talk about coalitions, they are finished. the story is finished. another story will start. why do you continue with this talk of coalition? >> attention now has turned to the election for successor george nepal ton know, whose term ends on may 15th. whoever takes over will have the key task of trying again to form a coalition or call fresh elections. so the president is chosen by an electoral college comprised of all national lawmakers and some regional representatives. to win any of the first three rounds, a candidate has to win two-thirds of the potential vote. from the fourth round on, an absolute majority is enough for victory. here are some of the suggested candidates. the five-star movement are backing left wing spishan stephaneo berdosa. many would back romano prodi. but prodi does not win berlusco berlusconi's report. the one candidate who appears to have united both berlusconi and bersani is former senate speaker franco

the election because you might remember the election wasn't decided that night and during the recount, that gave me the opportunity to receive a position of governor bush had won the election. everything lined up. that was perfect timing for me because right after he became president-elect i had the opportunity to ask him in person and actually took a page out of this political playbook. during the campaign it was going on in my head at that point that i would look them in the eye and asked him for the job. that is what i did at this party right after he became president-elect. >> host: what was his answer? >> guest: well he kind of looked at me and the longest handshake ever for me. he looked at me like he had never thought about it before and he said i really appreciate that and i will get back to you. a week later i received a call from the chief of staff office for an interview. it all happened very quickly. >> host: how many years did you spend with president bush? >> guest: well, if you count my time with him as a journalist , nearly two years. >> host: so you are at the white h

too fix it before the 2014 elections because another poll in this district that mitt romney won by 18% in this ppp poll said that by a two to one margin, voters were less likely to vote for republicans in the future because of their vote on background checks. i've said it all along. i've warned the nra from the beginning, give a pass on this legislation you've supported before. don't put your feet in cement because you're going to get knocked over. you're going to get beaten to a pulp politically. and you are. can you believe this, willie? >> this is too easy. it's not even risky for you to say. >> who are these fools on capitol hill who bury their head in the sand and are in the minority in one of the most conservative districts in one of the most conservative states in america and go with wayne lapierre instead of ronald reagan, who are these fools that listen to survivalists and cower in the corner and allow al qaeda members to have more readily access to weapons? who are these people? >> there are a lot of them. >> there are. >> we showed their names last week. >> they're democrat

between winning this and losing. if you look at those democrats, anderson, all but one are up for re-election next year in very red states. in very pro gun states. that was something that was lard for the president to take, but his -- there's no question that he and the people around him understood the politics of it. i think what surprised them the most was that there was a conservative republican pat toomey on this piece of legislation, he was able to get virtually no republicans that they weren't -- they didn't sort of think they had them in the bag before. what happened? look, i think the president -- i don't think anybody would argue with the fact that the president made a very cogent argument today of what happened. it is politics, it is genuine fear of the gun lobby. and i talked to several people who were in the room with the senators who they thought were on the fence, and it's clear to them, they thought, that the senators were looking for ways to get out of it as opposed to ways to say yes. >> glower yarks president obama visibly angry and emotional today. which is not something we
, elected official, law enforcement, they really present us with a set of complex questions. and above all, though, i have to repeat that the justice department, our federal united states department of justice, has the responsibility to enforce the controlled substances act. and that remains unchanged. to -- no state, no executive can nullify a statute that's been passed by congress. as the department of justice has noted, though, federal drug enforcement resources -- just like i did as a police chief -- we prioritize and target the serious crimes. serious crimes of drug dealing, violent crime and trafficking. and let's be clear that law enforcement officials take an oath of office to uphold federal law, and they're going to continue to pursue drug traffickers and drug dealers and transnational criminal organizations, all of which weaken our communities, and they pose very serious threats to our nation. and too often discussions about marijuana, though, dwell on this issue of legalization and whether making the drug more widely and easily available -- which it would be when it becomes lega
hope not. i believe that the people, the american people spoke eloquently in election. that is the hiscttee voted 70% for the democrat. that opens -- perhaps immigration reform was an issue whose time had come. that's why will have an immigration bill. 70% of hispanics voted democratic but it wasn't that they had a change of heart or a change of mind. it's that they had a clear picture. the fog faded from how important this issue was too many people in our country. and i feel very confident about how we go forward on the immigration bill. i commend the a to senators for the work they did. of course, it's a compromise. when i change things? of course, i do think that's what a compromise is about. i'm proud of the pashtuns are recalling the gang of eight? i don't know. bipartisan team in the house that were for democrats, for republicans have been working on this issue for longtime and their proposals are very much like what had been in the senate. so we're pretty happy about the place that it is. don't get me wrong. it's not ago that i would have written. it's not somet

elections, especially like those in 2012, it's very natural to debate what happened. looking at causes, solutions, tactics and strategy. indeed, it would be odd, especially with conservatives, not to debate those kinds of things. one popular argument is to adjust to changing times to focus on alternative versions of the status quo rather than changing directions. to change policies and sometimes principles, to adapt to new political environments. another approach, one that we favor, is to lay out a better and clearer conservative vision of american society. the role of government, unlimited opportunity, of political self-government. rather than new principles, what we need are better arguments. and when you take those arguments -- we need to take those arguments to the american people. it is in that spirit that we welcome today's speaker to heritageouat mike lee is in th third year of his first term. that means more terms to follow. the first -- the third year of his first term as united states senator from the state of utah. his background is in the law and, actually, he began his bac
